The Santa Cruz Valley Regional Hospital has launched a new program designed to help
physical rehabilitation patients.
The Medicare-certified Swing Bed Program will provide care for:
- Joint replacements or orthopedic surgery patients
- Those who have suffered a heart attack or congestive heart failure
- Sufferers of long-term illnesses, such as cancer or immune deficiency disease, and need continued medication and/or IV therapy
The Swing Bed unit includes nine private rooms, dedicated rehabilitation and mobility facilities, along with a team of physicians, nurses, rehabilitation therapists and case managers.
